Podcast: Diego Maradona | feat. Asif Kapadia

Asif Kapadia, the Oscar-winning director of Amy and Senna, joins us on the podcast this week to talk about his new film Diego Maradona, which arrives in cinemas this week.

In this inspired documentary portrait from Kapadia, we follow Maradona as he arrives at Naples in 1984, leading the club to their first ever title. But this success was the eye of the storm: Maradona's time in Naples was seven years of tumultuous chaos and jagged alliances. Using more than 500 hours of unseen footage from Maradona’s archive, this is another gripping story of an exceptional and complex person from the Oscar and BAFTA winning documentary team.

Discussing the film are Jake Cunningham, Caitlin Quinlan, Steven Ryder and Bertha DocHouse's own Tilly Hudson.
